Re: Is it time to boycott the Bahamas?
I do agree with you there. A MegaYacht uses more resources, causes more damage, and is more of an eyesore than a 30foot sailboat.
And yet, one fill up of diesel on a MegaYacht would create more revenue that twenty 35 foot cruising boats would produce in a year!
270' O'mega Yacht - fuel 200,000 litres
135' megayatch - fuel 37,854 litres
even the little 112 ' megayacht carries 20,763 litres
At a buck and a half a litre that is no small change.
I guess it is all relative.
